Your kid's spring or summer camp program may require a camp physical exam as part of the enrollment process. If your child's sleep-away camp, scout, day camp or sports program requires a camp physical then MedSpring can help by providing a fast and convenient option. If your camp or sports program requires completion of a camp physical exam that includes the authorization of a form by a qualified healthcare provider, here are some important elements to keep in mind in advance of your visit.
What to Bring to Your Child's Camp Physical
- A copy of the entire camp physical form for the physician to review and sign.
- Boy Scouts: Parents must complete the informed consent and General Information/Health History (sections A & B) before the visit
- Your child's prescription eye glasses or contacts, if they wear them.
- A copy of your child's latest immunizations.
What to Expect During Your Camp Physical
- Be prepared to discuss your child's past injuries and/or current treatments, conditions, allergies or medications with the provider during your camp physical visit.
- Insurance is not accepted for camp physicals. However, you are welcome to submit your receipt to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
- A camp physical should not replace your child's annual check-up with their primary care provider or family physician.
- Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts attending High Adventure camp: Please consult your child's primary care or family physician to conduct your camp physical.
